Career Paths

Starting in Grade 3, students begin the Robotics program where they learn :

  • basic mechanics
  • build projects
  • logic blocks
  • EV3 robots
  • Team & Individual Projects

The Pathway program goes from 5th to 8th grade. The Program includes one of the three pathways with a 4 year track.  The pathway courses will  be available on an A/B day rotation.  On the day of the pathway course, students will report to that class for all four 9 weeks of the school year.  On the opposite days, students will still be in a random 9 week rotation of the traditional specials’ courses.

What Is STEAM?

STEAM is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math education.
We believe :

  • The skills and knowledge in each discipline are essential for student success
  • These fields are deeply intertwined in the real world and in how students learn most effectively
  • STEAM is an interdisciplinary and applied approach that is coupled with hands-on, problem-based learning
